I must be doing something right

I sat down last night to start a Baby Surprise Jacket for Levi, and to my great surprise and delight, The Toddler abandoned Go Dog, Go, and The Little Engine That Could and became enthralled with Elizabeth Zimmermann's The Opinionated Knitter. He loved it! He pointed out all the babies and the mamas and the dadas and the grandmas. He talked about all the colors of the sweaters in the pictures. He asked for a red sweater after seeing the Tomten jackets, so I guess I have to find some red yarn. I had to pry him away from the book so he could take a bath. I'm just tickled to death that he enjoyed it so much.

I'm whipping through some socks and finishing up some baby gifts this week. Just a reminder, if you have entered the Summer of Socks and Lace contests at Natural Stitches, the deadline to bring your projects to the store to be weighed and entered is this Monday, Labor Day. I'll be there Saturday and Monday, and I'm looking forward to seeing all the entries.

Amelia would always rather read my knitting books! Especially Itty Bitty Hats. Lots of babies, lots of colors!

Oh my goodness - he's so big! It has clearly been way too long since we've seen you guys. He's a little boy now instead of a toddler (at least in that picture) - wow! And so cute with EZ's book!

I've been thinking about you - hoping that you are doing well. I do need some yarn...ahem...well, I "need" some specific yarn for the Babette blanket and I don't have what I "need" in my stash. I'll try to come for it on Saturday, but I may have to come sooner depending on H's schedule.

Hugs.

He is so ADORABLE! It has been such a long time since I have seen him that I can't believe how grown up he looks.

That is FABULOUS! Put some needles in that boy's hand!

I'm working to finish up my last pair of socks for the contest, so I may see you at the store on Saturday.

Go Henry!! You make your mama proud!
And I agree - he looks like quite the little boy in the photo!
